Preview: Jason Bard Yarmosky’s “Dream of the Soft Look”

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

Jason Bard Yarmosky investigates the relationship between youth and old age in his work, staging surreal scenes with elderly protagonists where a sense of childhood nostalgia permeates each image. Yarmosky’s paintings are photorealistic, but he also makes room for a more expressive approach, alternating between sharply focused and blurred elements rendered with loose brushstrokes. For his upcoming solo show, “Dream of the Soft Look” at Bertrand Delacroix Gallery in New York, Yarmosky went in a more cinematic direction than in his previous work — whether deliberate or not, hints of film noir and David Lynch-ian strangeness can be discerned. Take a look at our preview of “Dream of the Soft Look” below and see the exhibition October 3 through October 31.
